I read with disgust your comments on the planned removal of cancer services from Cornwall to Plymouth.

Cornwall is a place where public transport does not pass your front door every five minutes; public transport can be miles away.

We don't want to be transported 80 miles or more with half our gut missing and probably dying on the way. If we have to die, better it be with our family than isolated and alone. Get a life, that's what we want, not torture to fulfil some idiot's office-bound ideas.

We have confidence in our surgeons and we will sort out our problems without ridiculous outbursts from you.
